WEEKEND PIC May 25 - 27

Your Guide To The Weekend Viewing

1. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END (fantasy adventure with Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley) Rated * * * (out of 4): This 'trequel' of the POTC franchise is, as expected, full of thrills and spills. With so many subplots and twists in its 168-minute footage, however, it can be a bit tough on our butt.
Tatou and Elmaleh
2. PRICELESS (French romantic comedy with Audrey Tatou and Gad Elmaleh) Rated * * * (3 stars): A must for Tatou ('Amelie' & 'The Da Vinci Code') fans and connoisseurs of French comedies. This light-hearted caper is easy to fall in love with and enjoy.

3. SPIDER-MAN 3 (fantasy thriller with Tobey Maguire, Kristen Dunst and Thomas Haden Church) Rated: * * * (out of 4): Die-hard Spidey fans may feel shortchanged by director Sam Raimi's treatment of Venom, but the overall movie and effects are still awesome.

4. 28 WEEKS LATER (sci-fi thriller with Robert Carlyle, Rose Bryne and Jeremy Renner) Rated: * * * (3 stars): A decent and engaging 'sequel' to zombie flick "28 Days Later" by Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo who seems to go overboard with fast-pace editing and an excess of gore.

5. NEXT (sci-fi thriller with Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore and Jessica Biel) Rated * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): Lee Tamahori's adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story (about a man who can see minutes into the future) starts off promisingly but tapers into a confusing cat-and-mouse game. Nice love story, though.
